Do You Use Pumpkin Puree For Pumpkin Spice Waffles
Yes. You will need canned pumpkin puree. Make sure that it is puree and not pumpkin pie mix. Or if you have a recipe you enjoy, make homemade pumpkin puree.
How Do You Make A Light And Fluffy Waffle
- Measure correctly, so you have the right ratio.
- Don’t overmix. If you overmix you will get a heavy and dense waffle.
- When using your waffle maker, make sure to follow according to manufacture on cook time. Don’t overcook your waffles.
Can I Freeze Homemade Waffles
Of course. Simply cook your waffles accordingly, and lay them out on a baking rack and allow them to fully cool. Once cooled, then transfer to a cookie sheet, and toss in the freezer for around 15-20 minutes. Once they have hardened up, transfer to a freezer bag, and store that way.
You can freeze waffles for up to three months. This is a great way to prep for those hectic mornings where you don’t have time to cook. Pull out your tasty and perfect waffles and reheat and enjoy. No need to make a waffle batter and cook, just reheat.
Best Way To Reheat Waffles
You can warm them up in the microwave for a quick reheat, or even eat them chilled. I know that might sound crazy, but they are good thawed and slightly chilled.
Toppings For Pumpkin Waffles
- Maple Syrup
- Powdered Sugar
- Cream Cheese
- Cream cheese frosting
- Sprinkle of cinnamon
- Brown Sugar glazed nuts
Add on all your favorite waffle toppings and enjoy!
Biggest Secret To The Perfect Waffle
One of the biggest tips is to allow your waffle batter to have a five-minute rest before you start cooking. This will help to give you that light and fluffy texture you want for in a waffle. It will help the ingredients blend and build up so it is the perfect thickness for making your homemade waffles.
Tip For Batch Cooking Waffles For A Crowd
Waffles are great but it is hard when you need to make a ton to feed a crowd. Some waffles end up cold, and others are fresh off the griddle. One tip I learned years ago, is to turn your oven on to 195 degrees and whip them up, and then lay it right on the racks in the oven.
If you place them on a cookie sheet, they will get soft as the moisture builds. But laying them straight on the oven rack will be a nice way to keep them warm before you are ready to serve.
